Ramadan is a time when you exert yourself in worship, and for the believer, a true test of his faith is that he continues the good deeds thereafter. One such way to do this is to complete 6 fasts in the month of Shawwal, as the Prophet SAW said:
“Whoever fasts Ramadan and follows it with six days from Shawwal it is as if they fasted the entire year.”
The Prophet SAW explained this when he said: “Whoever fasts for six days after (Eid) al-Fitr has completed the year: (whoever does a good deed (hasanah) will have ten hasanah like it).”
According to another hadith the Prophet SAW said: “Allaah has made for each hasanah ten like it, so a month is like fasting ten months, and fasting six days (in Shawwal) completes the year.” (al-Nisaa’i and Ibn Maajah)
May Allah accept it from us ameen!
